Alpina XB7 Nr. 77 (Picture & Video Heavy)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi,

I waited almost a year for this beauty (order is from last summer). Now its here. It is awesome to drive that thing it feels like a small car when driving around corners and there is always enough power. Perfect car in every aspect. In Germany we say to such a thing "Eierlegende Wollmilchsau" (egg-laying woolly milk sow) ;-).

Enough words. Pictures...

And Video...

All the shadow line parts with black wheels make a huge difference. Brilliant decision to go for the rear entertainment screens and unbelievable B&W upgrade.

Yeah the RSE is really awesome. My childs loved it on our last roadtrip. Only the HDMI Port is really annoying (location).

The shadow line looks so good on the XB7 and with those Alpina Wheels and the blue. Stunning!

And if you like here is also a video
Now that's a German phrase I haven't heard before.

Looks absolutely wonderful. Well done, blacking out all that chrome, which is one of the reasons I chose not to go with an XB7.

Love it!

Spectacular! I love the shadowline trim and black wheels. Looks menacing. Hottest XB7 I have seen on this forum.

You have the nicest X7 on this forum in my opinion. Most beautiful exterior color combo I've seen. Never understood why some would pay the premium for the typical XB7. I get the performance part but to me the styling was Meh…. until I saw yours with the shadow line trim. The black accents just completely change the entire thing for me. Wow! Congrats! I want that

Wow on the new pics. I too wish we could get Lavalina in the USA. I would have been tempted by the XB7 if we did.

Was it a lot of work blacking out all that chrome?

Yeah i didn't like the chrome too. I was sure if i buy it, i change everything to black. I ordered the black wheels and it wasn't possible to order the black package. I asked my sales man if he can do something, but the answer was no. When i was in Buchloe (Location in Germany where the Alpinas are build) to choice the leather, i asked them if there is a way to get the black package and the answer was again, No. But then a few months later i tried again by emailing them directly and this time they could change my order. So this alpina you see on the pictures is in every way original. I didn't change a single thing

Yeah the leather is awesome. But it cost a small car

For me an alpina has to be in "Alpina Blue" and the black as second color finish it

See my other answer. Was a hard time to get it, but than i had to do nothing for it

We were really unsure for the white. But in real life it looks so great, that we had to go for it.
